Those Cranes should be fine. Or Cosworth, Ford Racing, obx, Crower. There are many to choose for the duratec engine.

Hey Dave, I don't have vtec & these cams are a great compremise for a strong DD. I'd sure like to try the 0012's to see how they are. You should see the lobe profile difference's between the oems & the cranes. Like boobies= 36c to a 32a.

I am ordering my fs werks lower solid mount friday when it comes in its getting installed asap!! After that i am planning on ordering the header at the end of this month and the middle of next month the sct programmer i am going to wait to install the header till after the programmer comes in. I am going to install header and use one resignator and then just out to a tip. I will keep everyone updated with pics and videos. After the header and sct i am planning on putting cams... With installing cams will i haft to change any of the valve train? Springs,lifters,rocker arms? Or can these crane cams #224-0010 be put in place of stock cams????

My opinion.

^^^^^ u say that i should skip the im because i will need the low end torque so the cosworth im does not add low end torque??
Description of cosworth im: The cosworth intake manifold has been engineered for maximum air flow while maintaining strong, low rpm torque and can be used for custom and turbocharged applications.

Reason asking is because after the header and tune and cams the very last bolt on i am planning on doing is the cossie im..??

The cossie manifold is really awesome/mean looking, but to see any real gains, your going to have to spin up the motor= no issues there but you'll lose what low end grunt you have. $700+ dollars plus a tune for it. I'd really be thinking of throwing a 23 onboard. You'd be real close & you'd gain a lot more grunt. Or throw a 23 head on & get the 23 imtv working.
